This Saturday, acclaimed writer and theatre-maker Gary McNair presents a poignant, innovative and gleefully funny love letter to one of Scotland’s greatest sons with Dear Billy at The Lowry.

Staged outside Scotland for the first time, Dear Billy promises a ‘moving, fascinating and often hilarious’ (The Scotsman) celebration of Billy Connolly with a collection of joyous stories from those who love him most, from comedic contemporaries and childhood friends to hardcore fans and his old Clydeside shipyard coworkers, as McNair unveils the incredible scope of The Big Yin’s impact on multiple generations throughout every corner of his beloved nation.

Hailed as ‘a gloriously masterful 90 minutes of theatre’ by The Telegraph, the rousing and riotous production journeys south of the border on Sat 1 Jun with even more remarkable tales and delightful tributes from those who know him, those who’ve met him and those who dream of seeing Scotland’s greatest-ever comedian in person.
